Course Description

The module "Corporate Restructuring & Transformation" deals with the restructuring of companies against the backdrop of changing business models. Based on investment theory considerations, the creation of value for shareholders and the question of financing growth, the importance of internal financing and thus cost reduction to free up financial resources for growth areas of a company is discussed. In the area of cost reduction, the focus is on understanding cost functions, (a-)symmetrical cost curves and cost structures. In addition, the ability to reduce and structure various types of costs such as material costs or personnel costs are covered. In the area of growth, the management of and investment in promising business areas such as digitalization, e-commerce or decarbonization will be discussed. With the help of guest lectures, case studies and supplementary exercises, relevant topics are explored in greater depth and students are given an in-depth understanding.
